Northwest Washington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-5)

The apartment is the third floor of a typical DC row house which was built in 1904. The neighborhood is a lovely mix of beautiful homes with gorgeous gardens and a great restaurant district. The apartment itself is charming, clean and well maintained with some typical period details. There are hard wood floors throughout and a working fireplace in the bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped and there is seating and place settings for a dinner for 8. The furnishings are comfortable and chosen with an eye to the space. We try to ensure that there are age appropriate toys up there(if applicable).

The layout is typical for the period, the bathroom and kitchen are accessed from the master bedroom. It suitable for singles, a couple or a family with up to four children. We live in the units below, the unit above has permanent tenants.

The apartment itself is quiet because it is on a quiet street, and is on the third floor. It is bright and sunny. There are good public transportation options nearby; the metro is a short walk, buses are close and taxis are easily available. (15 dollars to National Airport). There is no reserved parking spot associated with the building and parking can be challenging in the evenings.

No smoking and no pets please.

We loved our stay here! It had everything you need for a relaxing stay. A multitude of restaurants, bars and fun eats in walking distance. Metro stations close by and easy to find. The apartment is the perfect size for a small family, basic amenities; kitchen, bathroom and linen. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe to wonder about. Far enough away from the heart of downtown to experience the big city life and the local life. The owners made arrival and departure simple, left detailed instructions and ideas of things to do and were available via email if we needed anything. If you want a Washington DC experience with the perfect spot for a diversity of food and fun. Highly recommend a stay here.

Good size, clean, roomy property in an excellent, safe area of DC

  • 5 of 5

Adams Morgan is a lovely district of DC.

The apartment is well furnished, light and airy. The beds were comfortable and most important, very clean.

The airconditioning works well but is quite noisy so make sure you have the room to the temperature you want before going to sleep. WiFi works well (important for teenagers!). Be aware that the entrance to the bathroom is off the main bed area so if you're "shy" about having someone walk through your bed area at night to go to the bathroom then take the other room in the apartment!

The nearest Metro station is about 12 mins walk away so if you have bags or are not used to walking then take the free Circulator bus from more or less outside the property direct to the metro. It's only one stop! There are also buses nearby that take you straight to the City - but they are slow at rush hour (obviously).

We enjoyed our stay here and can highly recommend the apartment and the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review! The circulator buses are not supposed to be free, but there are often fare holidays and the drivers are lax. The H St. Streetcar on the other hand is free!

Comfortable, quiet, and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located on a gorgeous street in Adams Morgan, close to the zoo, Woodley Park metro, and great restaurants. We were two adults and two kids, and were very comfortable during our stay. Katy is super friendly and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. She was a great host! If you're around at the right time, you may also be lucky enough to meet Stella, the family cat. We had a great time and the kids are already asking to stay there again when we return to DC.

Bright and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in this cute DC apartment. The owner is great and very responsive and reachable. It is a totally walkable neighborhood with restaurants and the zoo nearby. As the owner mentioned, parking is tough to find and it is tricky to navigate the DC parking regulations. So, if you are planning on bringing a car you may want to let the owner know ahead of time. She may be able to help you get a guest parking pass or plan ahead on how to handle having a car in the city most effectively.

All in all a great place to stay, we will be back next time we're in DC!

Owner's Response: We are well located for public transportation and there are often smarttrip cards in the apartment. People with cars usually park the car for the duration and use public transportation (or car2go or bike share or taxis). I can sometimes get a visitor's parking permit, but I need at least a couple of days notice. Parking regulations in DC are quite restrictive, plus Adams Morgan is a destination neighborhood so parking can be a challenge especially on weeekend evenings

Great apartment in a super-hip neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this apartment. It was just as described - clean, well equipped, plenty of room - even for a family of 5 (all three kids are full-sized). It is easy to get around - 10 minute walk to the subway station by the zoo - ubers in a minute. Katy was very helpful and friendly - offering to put the AC in for us, as we were there just when the weather turned. Turned out not to be necessary - plenty of cross-breeze with open windows. Katy left a great list of things to do and places to eat in the area, which we used very happily. We were really happy that we stayed in Adams Morgan. It is really hip, casual, funky - good place to see the more relaxed side of DC, after seeing all of the tourist stuff during the day. I would definitely recommend the apartment, and hope I can stay there again some day!

Largo, Florida

Great location in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

This rental is located within walking distance of many great restaurants, coffee places and the metro. Two metro stations were within walking distance and we found this to be the easiest way to see DC. (Parking is a little hard to find.) We had 5 in our party and found the apartment to be comfortable for us all. The location was very safe and quiet.
